Ok I can’t find the answer to my problem anywhere so I am hoping that someone can show me the way.
I am a programmer and I want to know how I can do this technically.
How can I call someone on an ordinary phone line. Like if someone doesn’t have VoIP installed, is not connected at all to the internet. Can I do that without using my actual analog phones? (POTS)
I don’t want to connect my phone to a VoIP server, I don’t want to route 2 phones together with a VoIP server, I just want to call another number that I don’t know ahead of time that isn’t on a VoIP network.
I’m thinking that from my computer I can use Asterisk to connect to a PSTN (??) and it will make the call to an actual oridinary phone? Or that my computer with Asterisk has to be connected to a lot of phone lines and that there is no way to do it over the internet.
Please help, thanks!
